This weekend is a big one in the Dutch Oven world. At the Utah Outdoorsman Expo each spring, the International Dutch Oven Society (IDOS) hosts its World Championship Cook Off. Teams from all over come to compete. Come on out and see some incredible cheffery!
In addition, just north of the cooking area (if they set up like they have in years past), there's the IDOS booth, with membership information and a demo area. They'll be staging classes all weekend long.
Yours truly will be doing a class on the basics of knife use on Thursday, right after they announce the day's finalists for the cookoff. I'm excited to be doing it. I'll be showing how to shop for a good chef's knife without breaking the bank, how to keep it sharp, and how to wield it on some chicken and veggies for a nice, easy chicken soup. Come see how to swing a sword!
For info on location and discount tickets, etc... here's the announcement on the IDOS website. Anyone interested in dutch oven cookery should be haunting that site anyway!
